Priority public records bill fails to pass House

Although a majority of legislators were supporting AWC’s priority public records bill, HB 1128, House leadership did not allow the bill to come to the floor for a full vote by Wednesday’s cutoff. We believe the concern was that legislators would be perceived as not supporting open and transparent government if the bill passed. Thank you to all of the cities who contacted their legislators in support of this bill. We will be meeting with the bill’s sponsor to determine next steps.
